The average GMAT score and 80% range should give you a good approximation. You can check booth class profile at the following link https://www.chicagobooth.edu/mba/full-t ... ss-profile

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Tuesday Tips: Booth MBA Essay Tips for 2021-2022


The University of Chicago Booth School of Business ranks as a top choice school for many MBA students. Chicago Booth has a tradition of intellectual inquiry, non-conformity, and innovation. Along with solid academics, Chicago will be looking for leadership and team-building skills and community involvement. Review our Booth MBA essay tips to strengthen your application.

Booth MBA Essay Tips for the 2021-2022 Admissions Season
This set of essays focuses on both your career goals and your personality. The second essay is about your interests. Also, note that Chicago is setting a word minimum for the required essay responses, while most schools list a maximum. Therefore Chicago Booth is asking you to be thoughtful in your responses to these MBA essays and make sure you have enough space to answer the question.

Your first Booth MBA essay tip is to do as much school research as possible on Chicago Booth. First, attend virtual or in-person events if possible. Speak to alumni. Also, read the admissions blog. Visit campus if possible for you. In conclusion, do what you can to experience the community for yourself before starting your application. This research will be invaluable as you set pen to paper for the Booth MBA essays.

The Chicago MBA admissions committee can see your academic skills from your GPA/GMAT, transcripts, and other fixed data points. You should cover your personal qualities, leadership, and career goals in these essays.

Essay Questions
Essay One: How will the Booth MBA help you achieve your immediate and long-term post-MBA career goals? (250-word minimum)
This Chicago Booth career goals essay is the ideal way to describe your track record of success. Also, you can show that you have realistic expectations for your Booth MBA. For example, while career goals should be aspirational, they should also be possible.

Think about what you have done so far in your career. What have you learned? How can you use your experiences to inform your future goals? Then, think about how a Booth MBA can fill in any gaps. What classes will you take? Professors that can help you advance your goals? How will you engage with clubs and peers?

This question asks for both short and long-term goals, so keep your long-term path in mind as you answer. Ideally, your short-term goal job leads directly into your long-term goal position, and an MBA education is necessary for both paths. Examples from your prior roles will support achieving your goals with the required education and experience.

Finally, the essay asks why Booth is the right place for you to pursue your MBA. Make sure to learn all you can about Booth, specifically. Thorough research into your career path and the options at Booth will allow you to answer this question fully and with conviction. With COVID-19 restrictions, it may be tough to get a comprehensive feeling of Booth. But virtual options like blogs and videos and speaking with current students and alumni can help you.



Essay Two: An MBA is as much about personal growth as it is about professional development. In addition to sharing your experience and goals in terms of career, we’d like to learn more about you outside of the office. Use this opportunity to tell us something about who you are. (250-word minimum)
Chicago Booth is looking for self-aware leaders with a sense of purpose. Therefore, Booth wants to understand your personal life. Are you someone who embraces personal growth? And what is your definition of purpose?

To focus this essay, consider using stories about your life. Have you done something in a volunteer capacity that shows who you are? Or, does your cultural background have an impact on your personality? What experiences have made an impact on you?

For example, one of our clients used a personal story about a crisis in her family to explain how she prioritizes relationships. That aspect of her personality led her to be a particularly effective leader at work and volunteer activities.

Think about a similar story you may have. After you tell the story, reflect on the meaning. How did these experiences help you grow as a person? And, what does that tell you about your capacity for growth at Booth?

This Booth MBA essay should communicate who you are and what motivates you. Overall, your goal with both essays is to give the admissions committee a holistic sense of your potential.



Optional Essay:

Is there any unclear information in your application that needs further explanation? (300-word maximum)
This optional essay is flexible, allowing you to provide as much information as you need. Consider writing this essay if you have any areas in your profile that require further explanation. Have you had academic issues or gaps in work experience? Then this is the ideal place to add more detail.

Because the essay is open-ended, you can also use it to add any additional information. Think about what you wanted to add to your application. Perhaps you have a compelling personal story that didn’t fit in the other essays. If it helps the admissions committee understand you better, it’s worth telling. Also, you might have a strong leadership story or a meaningful extracurricular to add context to your MBA application.

Reapplicant Essay:

Upon reflection, how has your perspective regarding your future, Chicago Booth, and/or getting an MBA changed since the time of your last application? (Maximum 300 words.)
This is an interesting re-applicant question. Because, instead of asking how your candidacy has improved, Booth asks how your perspective has changed. Improvements such as better test scores, a promotion, or a new job would still be helpful information. However, the focus is to reflect on yourself and your goals since you applied to Booth.

When writing this essay, consider what has changed since your last application. For example, have you learned more about your career path, formed new relationships, or changed your career goals? Also, this is an ideal essay to demonstrate self-awareness and leadership qualities. Another essential angle is communicating a realistic sense of how the Booth MBA fits into your future professional plans.

Hi all! The Booth Application asks: What type of event did you attend (Please check all that apply). What is the difference among the following options - Webinar or live chat, Booth Live event, Admissions-hosted events. What category would a Masterclass (Attending a class virtually), and the Zoom in On Booth sessions fall under?

From this link https://apply.chicagobooth.edu/portal/FTZoom , I think Zoom in On Booth would be an Admissions-hosted event and a Masterclass would be a Booth LIve event?

It will be a good way to show interest in the school but I don't think not attending any event will be a deal-breaker :)

ad18, many admissions committees have systems that files your activities such as interactions and attending info sessions, etc. As Nikhil said, showing interest is helpful and it is tracked.

A Csuite exec / Booth alum at my company is willing to write me an endorsement to help boost my chances of admission. Does anyone know what's the best channel for him to do this? I already have my 2 recommenders. Thanks!

Booth is one of the rare programs that actually has a formal online pathway for someone like this to submit an endorsement. They call it "Shape the Class," and it can be found here: https://www.chicagobooth.edu/shapetheclass

After following that link, they should click "Get Started" on the right-hand side of the page. The referral form then asks them the following questions (so they do need to know you with some substance):

1. What are the candidate’s most outstanding professional strengths relative to his or her peer group?
2. How would you describe the candidate’s interpersonal skills and fit in the Booth Community?
3. What is your overall assessment of the candidate’s potential to contribute to Booth classmates?
4. Please provide further information you think relevant to our evaluation process.

Hi,
STEM option might provide an option to get a overall of 36 months OPT against 12 month OPT a non STEM designated program. The prerequisite might be different for each program and varies among universities. You need to check the individual university and the specific program to know the admission requirements.

*the STEM 36 months OPT will be available for those who meets up the requirements of STEM OPT extension (24 month extension in addition to initial 12 month permit). And it is mostly useful for international students who need longer work permission after graduation.
